you can still download them track by track. just click the 'download options' under the 'zip' link and there they all are. you can use a download manager like "Get Right" to que them up then if one corrupts during download you can replace that one.

I personally like the zip format. downloaded probably 30 shows, 0 problems, and having it all packaged is nice.

recent speeds are amazing. thank you archive staff! rememebr when all people did was complain about speeds? I have seen 0 speed complaints in the past 2-3 months. Can't even remember the last one.

Good times! spread the tunes!

I hope you find this reply, considering it was tucked so far away in the thread ... but e-mail me your problem and we'll work it out. i need more specifics ... did you download the entire ziped file? in that case, unzip it, and inside are all the .shn files. play those in winamp using the shnamp plugin or convert to wav using the mkwact toolbox.

hope that helps!

Thanks Tyler,
Yes i downloaded the zipped file. I open it and i've tried convering to wave in the mkw (w/runtime libraries) and i've tried to play in winamp(with shnamp installed) and still nothing. when i drag the Zip file into the mkw i get the arrow w/ plus box, but when i try to drag & drop an individual .shn file i get a slashed circle (if you can understand that). I run Windows ME if that helps. i really appreciate your help.

Hmm, weird. What show / details page are you working on? I have never heard of dragging a zip file into the mkwACT toolbox before, but drag/droping the .shn files into the box SHOULD decode them to wav. you using the most up to date mkw? 0.97? Hmm, I'm not too familiar with WinME (im on 98se still).

The only thing I can think of for the programs to not work the way they predictably would is that the show you downloaded are .flac files not .shn files. If that is the problem, there are good FLAC FAQ's around the web, check out etree.org but if they are indeed .shn files, i'm not really sure what to tell you.

I guess if you post the show / details page, someone else can download / unzip / decode to wav and see if your problem is replicatable.
